During the 2022 trade deadline period, the Toronto Raptors offered the Los Angeles Lakers a first round pick in exchange for Talen Horton-Tucker.

The Lakers were on the fringes of playoff contention, but still hoped to secure a play-in spot.

The Lakers may have also had to take on Khem Birch as part of the deal.

During the offseason, the Lakers traded Horton-Tucker to the Utah Jazz for Patrick Beverley.
